was reluctant to have one meeting in a u.n. schedule where normally he'll have 15, because of the nearness of the campaign. >> this is the whole question of whether or not president obama should be meeting right now with the leaders who are gathered here on the world stage. he is not having any meetings at all. was this to avoid having to meet with prime minister netanyahu or president morsi of egypt? >> welt -- >> equally difficult in a political year. >> better to do nothing than something in this case. i think it had to do a little bit with morsi, didn't want to be seen -- the campaign didn't want him to be seen as meeting with the lus mim brotherhood president of egypt and not the prime minister of israel. remember he had an hour long phone conversation with netanyahu last week and they did cover ground. it's probably easier at this point not to see anyone, rather than just one prime minister or president and get everybody mad at him. >> a lot of politics in this. would you explain to me why if the president wanted to say that his schedule was too busy to meet with these world leaders,

for israel's prime minister to take his turn at u.n. general assembly any moment now. joining me first, former u.s. ambassador to israel, dennis ross, who held top jobs in middle east policy including iran and three administrations, the obama white house. a midder middle east diplomacy for msnbc and washington institute. dennis, let's talk about what netanyahu signaled he's doing today, demanding an ultimatum to iran on its nuclear program something the administration, the white house, has insisted they needambiguous. who is right here? >> imnot sure there is as wide a gap as you think. i believe what you're seeing is an agreement on the objective of making certain that iran cannot have nuclear weapons and then also i think agreeing that you have to come up with some kind of threshold to know when the objective of prevention has a meaning and it doesn't lose its content. i do think where the prime minister's coming from is, he wants to put, i think, a premium on having a clear definition of what's the point past which if iran crosses that particular line or tloesh hohreshold you'r long

the president for what he said at the u.n. and talking about how we are in sync. our intelligence and military communities are on the same it timeline with respect to iranian nuclear development. and i think yesterday the president -- prime minister netanyahu drew a line which frankly the president has already drawn not with a cartoon and with that kind of a fdispla but the president has said point blank american policy is not a matter of containment, it is a matter of prevention. they will not have the ability to make a bomb. and the president is prepared to back that up. so, there is no gap here. and once again, mitt romney just as he did when he stepped out early in his comments on libya, inappropriately and wrong, he is once again inappropriately and wrongly characterizing the president's policy. >> john kerry, all fired up for debate preparation, have fun with that. >> thank you. >> have fun playing mitt romney and thank you so much. thanks for being with us today. >> thank you. >>> and up next here, israel's red line on iran. have we reached the point of no return? when will we? this is
